it might have some shell desease. That could mean, bad water, dehydration, maybe not enough food and alot of other things but you should take it to a vet ASAP
I love my turtle, and my horsie, and my froggie!

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

There's a condition called "soft shell"

Your turtle pbb has insufficient lighting and insufficient diet. Google your turtle species and soft shell or read about the other posts here on the forums...
